"I was fed up:" Several parents complain about Lakeside Bus showing up late or not at all

“I was fed up: “ Several parents complain about Lakeside Bus showing up late or not at all


MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Some parents are taking to social media to vocalize their concerns about Lakeside Bus. 

Several parents said that the bus comes late or not at all. 

Every morning, Jermesha Tye's kids get up, get ready for school and wait for the bus. 

"I don't feel like its safe I feel like they are toying with people's children," said Tye. 

But recently, she decided to pull her two kids off the bus and take them herself after Lakeside Bus was consistently late or didn't show. 

"I was fed up," said Tye. 

According to Tye, her kids took the bus a total of eight times since the beginning of the school year.

"As far as them being late, every day," said Tye.

Tye is not alone. A mother recently wrote to community organizer, Tory Lowe, about her issues with Lakeside Bus and in response, dozens of parents expressed their concerns. CBS 58 also spoke with six other parents who didn't want to be on camera who complained about similar issues with Lakeside Bus. 

One stated, "my kids would be out in the freezing cold." Another said, "I have the same problem, it's utterly ridiculous." 

Tye keeps track of the bus through the school's alerts. She's received multiple alerts that the bus would be late either picking up or dropping off her children. 

“They need to be on school on time and brought home in a fashionable manner. I hope they figure it out," said Tye. 

CBS 58 reached out to Lakeside Bus but has not heard back.

I absolutely HATE this bus company!!! My kids were the first kids to get picked up at 5:55am last year and everyother day, the same driver was late over 30 min. Calling the bus company didn't do anything bc they either let the phone ring, never answered, or made excises of for the driver. Please do a follow-up segment on this company as many of us parents really don't want our children on these huses anymore.

When the school switched to lakeside this year, my son has rode the bus maybe 10 times since the school year has started, and that’s being nice. They were ALWAYS late and never showed up on a number of occasions. It was one time they didn’t pick the kids up from the school and I had to drive with my neighbor to go get our kids. Ans OF COURSE they NEVER answer the phones when you call. Like if my son new school uses them, I REFUSE to go through that another year. I would rather pay for transportation and figure it out then to rely on them.

Lakeside is the worse bus company in the city. My kids are always late for school and 2 hours late getting home. They get out at 3 and don't get home until after 5 their school is less than 2 miles away.
